Target audience for a Covid 19 Workplace Preparedness Course

This online Coronavirus Awareness, Risk Assessment and COVID-19 Workplace Preparedness course is suitable for anyone who needs to carry out a workplace risk assessment for coronavirus. Or needs an understanding of coronavirus and how to minimise the risk of infection.

Coronavirus has disrupted many business operations. This course aims to help companies and individuals understand the “coronavirus work laws” and guidance regarding the management of coronavirus in the workplace.

The course covers commonly asked questions such as:

What is coronavirus? How to protect against coronavirus? How to kill coronavirus? What is COVID-19? What is coronavirus law? How to do a Covid-19 risk assessment?

The course sources material from the HSE, UK Government, Public Health England and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. This is then used to outline potential risks of infection within the workplace.

Whilst the course is aimed specifically at identifying and controlling coronavirus risks in the workplace, the methods detailed for carrying out a risk assessment and introducing risk controls apply equally to any workplace risk. 

Meets the training requirements of HSE, HSG 17, CHAS, SafeContractor, ConstructionLine, Exor, SMAS and other SSIPs.
